McLaren MP4-12C Spider revealed
After speculation last week, we can confirm that the next chapter in the What Car Will McLaren Make Next? saga is one hundred percent the McLaren MP4-12C Spider. And look at it, it’s stunning. And to answer your question - yes. It’s got the more powerful 616bhp, 3.8-litre twin-turbo V8. And yes, it’ll do over 200mph - but only 204mph, 3mph slower than it’s closed-roof sibling. Even so, hairpiece owner will need some stickier glue as the Spider does 0-60mph in 3.1 seconds - the same time as the coupe. The Spider uses a variation of the coupe’s carbon-fibre MonoCell chassis. This 75kg tub requires no additional strengthening for it to feature in the 12C Spider and because of its F1 techyness, it means that the car is almost identical to its fixed roof counterpart in the performance department.
Did we mention that it’s stunning?
